Penn State is aiming to create the best home-court atmosphere in college basketball and heighten the game day experience within the Bryce Jordan Center. To do that, the Nittany Lions have announced a reseating plan.

It’s taking place following Penn State’s yearly evaluation process and based on feedback received in the 2021-22 postseason season ticket holder surveys. Penn State Athletics reviewed many options to create a true home-court advantage as part of an extraordinary student-athlete and fan experience.

The relocation of the student section will enhance the game day atmosphere, the student-athlete experience, the Penn State student experience and the overall fan experience by helping to create an intimidating and raucous environment for opposing teams.

The process will take place in August and will primarily feature a relocation of the student section to behind the team benches placing students in the primary viewing area for those watching games on TV, reported. Previously the student section had been located across from the benches. Over time the relocation of television cameras resulted in the student section no longer facing the cameras.

The key dates are August 9, which is when deposits are due and the deadline to improve NLC Priority Point rank, and August 23 when seat selection begins.
